For many of us these days, pets are members of the family with whom we share our homes, our couches, and our lives. All living beings have in common the same Life Force or Spirit—animals and humans—so it is natural for people to form strong, energetic bonds with their four-legged companions. According to the Edgar Cayce readings, individuals do not meet by chance—there is always an opportunity for soul development linked to every relationship we have. Holistic Veterinarian and Venture Inward magazine columnist Dr. Doug Knueven shares how this concept applies to the human-animal bond just as much as it does to inter-human relationships. We are meant to enjoy, learn from, and grow with our animal family members.
Join us for an exploration of Cayce concepts that apply to our special relationships with animals and learn more about your spiritual connection with your own four-legged companions. This program includes an experiential application of these lessons as we connect deeply with a beloved pet.
